The Art of Stand-up Comedy

Looking to try Stand-up for the first time? Expand your material? Refine your existing set? In this class you’ll generate material, craft jokes, build a monologue and develop your unique comedy persona. You’ll learn about timing, act-outs and voice. You will learn microphone technique and how to speak to an audience. Each day, students will get up in front of the class and perform, building their comfort level and their confidence. The workshop will culminate in a graduation show at Montclair Film’s Cinema 505, which will be filmed so students can see their performances.  Requirements: A notebook, a pen and your sense of humor.
